Aye it was a nice wee film. Lord Summerisle looking nice and barking.

A bit of a forerunner for Royston Vasey

This was a brilliant documentary featuring Jim White.

As he trawls through Ayrshire looking for flute bands.

Na it's that one it's Jim White the singer/songwriter. Some brilliant American Roots tunes in it....

Searching for the Wrong-Eyed Jesus.

First transmitted in 2004, Jim White takes a road trip into the heart of the poor white American South through a gritty terrain of churches, prisons, truckstops and coalmines.

Oh dear god...what's it about?
It's a comedy from 1990. I'm assuming it has a cult following with it being released on DVD.

A New Jersey mad doctor (James Lorinz) rebuilds his girlfriend (Patty Mullen) with body parts from exploded hookers.

Saw Where the Crawdads Sing last night.
It's a decent watch.

Anyone watched this before?

Yup. I do enjoy a trashy B-movie.

It's what you'd expect. Horror comedy about a guy who tries to make a replacement for his wife out of bits of dead hookers that turns into a zombie prostitute. Won't be for everybody.

It's by the same guy who made Basket Case (the one about the guy who keeps his monster Siamese twin in a basket but it keeps getting out and killing people).

I'd give it three chainsaws out of five.

Any yous watch documentaries about over the water?

On Yatube is a site called A Troubled Land.

Loads of stuff I've never seen before.

Shows documentaries from both sides and also civilians caught up in the madness.

And also crimes that seldom got reported in the media

Good movie that. The turning into a monster as a metaphor for puberty thing is a well worn trope but that one does it well.

Just finished watching Prey on Disney+

A Predator sequel that's actually really good! The beastie is hunting Comanche natives and French settlers in 1700s America in this one. Young female warrior trying to prove herself to her tribe is the Arnie substitute.

It's not got the macho one liners of the original but it's got all the tension and action you'd want out of a movie like this. I'd recommend it.

Watched it. Aye it's passable. Found some of the dialogue a bit pony though.

But worth a gander.

The Father.
About an elderly man who is descending into dementia/alzheimer's.
It takes a while to come to grips with what is actually happening, and how Hopkins is seeing his world.
Anthony Hopkins is excellent in this.
Powerful acting.
Powerful film.

Think I'd have to pass.

Breaks my heart, watched a few programs where it ends up coming into play and it gets to me.
Even before family members going through it.

Hopkins is a great actor, I think it'd be too much for me now.

I get your drift.
I witnessed a friend..my neighbour, disintegrate in less than 3 years.
Lived next door for 15 years and kept in touch after they moved house.
Used to visit him regularly.
I meet him out walking with his wife.
I stop and talk to them.
That's a lie....I talk to her, as he doesn't know me.
As his wife said , he doesn't know who she is anymore.
He looks the same guy, but....
Hellish.
